The Equine Team at Stable Connections

Our horses are an integral part of our team at Stable Connections. We actually do very little talking during our sessions. Instead, our facilitating team lets our clients interact with the horses. Horses are naturally great mirrors!

They reflect back a client’s behaviors, and true changes and results occur when clients realize they have the power to change themselves and therefore the world around them.

Kopper

Blaze

An 18-year old Quarter Horse that has become the protector of the big horses, nothing comes into the pasture without Blaze checking it out. He's blind in his left eye, but his disability doesn't stop him. He is our go-to horse for beginning riders and EAL activities with older students and veterans.
